Pelosi (Do I really have to type her name?) ...have plane will travel...on your dime!

Source: ScrapeTV
NANCY PELOSI STILL LOOKING TO JOIN MILE HIGH CLUB

Luxury Jet

Washington, DC – Secret documents leaked from inside the Department of Defense reveal that House speaker Nancy Pelosi has made repeated requests to the military for her travel plans. The leaked documents outline correspondences between Pelosi’s offices and Air force travel agents indicating the speaker made requests far outside the normal dispensation made for congressional leaders including requests for high end aircraft and repeated last minute cancellations, leading to many just plain upset at her diva behaviour.Nancy Pelosi victory

The documents were uncovered by Judicial Watch, the ultra conservative Washington Lobby group, which receives most of its funding from other ultra-conservative foundations, most of which are owned by billionaire newspaper publisher Richard Mellon Scaife. Pelosi has been a particular target for conservative groups, even those claiming bi-partisanship, largely because of her ultra left wing partisanship.

“Taken together, these documents show that Speaker Pelosi treats the Air Force like her personal airline,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Not only does Speaker Pelosi issue unreasonable requests for military travel, but her office seems unconcerned about wasting taxpayer money with last-minute cancellations and other demands.”Boeing 737 luxury

Among other requests Pelosi apparently made was travel on a G5, essentially a small luxury plane, and after being denied reportedly stamped her feet and walked out of the room. Pelosi has been hit by similar criticism in the past, in particular a request in 2007 for a new plane that would not have to stop to be refuelled.

“I want an aircraft that will reach California,” Pelosi said in 2007 “I don’t care what kind of plane it is as long as it can fly nonstop to my home district.”

Pelosi’s home district is San Francisco, 2800 miles from Washington, a trip only aircraft capable of intercontinental flights are able to make nonstop, all of which of course are much more expensive. Nancy Pelosi speaking

“All members of congress are afforded trips to their home district on military aircraft and have been since 9/11 but it seems like Pelosi is the only one who is complaining about the service she is receiving. Of course Pelosi is the most powerful woman in the history of The United States, third in line to the Presidency, and so maybe she does deserve a little more regard then just normal members of congress,” said Scrape TV Political analyst Gabriel Kinsey. “Being in that position though she does hold high regard in the eyes of the American people and I’m sure most of them will be more than happy to spend their tax dollars on giving her the absolute best flying experience possible. American families may not have much money right now, but if anything is going to pull them out of this crisis its spending money on excesses and luckily Pelosi is there to remind them of that.”Nancy Pelosi scary

Pelosi’s office has denied any inappropriate usage of military equipment or last minute cancellations. They have also denied talk of other inappropriate conduct while on cross country flights.

“It’s really spurious and sexist to suggest that kind of thing, and that wouldn’t happen if she were a man. Of course she would probably be less of a diva if she were a man as well and this discussion may not be happening at all,” continued Kinsey. “Besides, I mean really. She may have been attractive twenty, thirty, maybe forty years ago but now not so much. These guys are in the military, not stupid.”

It’s not clear if Pelosi’s requests have had any negative impact on the war on terror, though expectations are that someone will try to find such an occurrence. Marines jumping from plane

“If they can somehow link her requests to maybe soldiers dying in Iraq then her career could really be in trouble. At the very least the morale of the people involved has to be low,” continued Kinsey. “I don’t imagine any pilot or crew members will be doing anything but grumbling when they get that call to transport Pelosi, especially if she’s in one of her moods.”

Health Care and you...aaah that should be "Health Care and us." (US as in United States)

Source: Examiner.com

Illegal immigration's effect on the U.S. health care system
Health care reform has become the number one issue facing the American people over the last several weeks. To say there is general disagreement on the best possible way to proceed, or if the government should be involved in our health care system at all, would be a gross understatement. President Obama has been either unable or unwilling to explain exactly what his plan is and I believe the reason for that is simple. He doesn't have one. In recent days some Democrats seem to be backing off of the single-payer idea, while others are still pushing it hard. Trying to get honest, straightforward answers on what we can expect and how much it will cost has been like pulling teeth.

Lawmakers' responses to questions relating to publicly-funded health care for illegal immigrants have been especially vague, but need to be answered. It has been reported that the issue has been discussed in commitee meetings on Capitol Hill, but very little has been said publicly.

Congressional Budget Office estimates on the cost of the current House bill range from 1.1 to 1.6 trillion dollars for the first ten years, and that would only cover around 13 million of the estimated 47 million who are now currently uninsured. How many of those uninsured are illegal immigrants? Will they will be covered by the government plan? It is impossible to accurately predict the cost of any plan without knowing the answers to those questions.

Also, those cost projections can't possibly include the millions of illegals who are not yet in the U.S., but will most certainly be coming here in the future if our borders are not secured and our immigration laws are not enforced. One of the major reasons for rising costs in our current health care system is the tens of billions of dollars that are being spent to treat illegal immigrants. The vast majority of illegals who receive medical treatment in this country never pay a dime for the services they're provided. That forces hospitals and other health care providers to raise costs. That in turn forces insurance companies to raise premiums.

It is estimated that there are currently more than 6.1 million uninsured adult illegal aliens in the U.S., and more than 700,00 uninsured children who are illegal immigrants. These numbers are provided by the non-partisan Pew Hispanic Center, and are based on census figures. Taking into account that many illegals do not take part in the census, the numbers are probably much higher.

Hospitals do not track immigration figures so determining the estimated cost of providing health care to illegals is very difficult. According to Reuters, The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates the cost at somewhere near 10.7 billion dollars annually, but calls that estimate conservative.

And what about Medicaid fraud? Proof of citizenship used to be required when appying for Medicaid, but H.R. 3693, passed in 2007, bypasses that requirement. Now those enrolling in Medicaid are not even required to show identification. They need only to provide a name and Social Security number. State agencies are only required to determine if the name and number match an actual individual on file with the Social Security Administration. They are not required to determine if the person providing the name and number is a U.S. citizen, or even if they are actually who they claim to be. How many billions is that costing?

President Obama has blamed doctors who perform unnecessary surgeries, and vilified insurance companies with their "unfair practices" and "obscene profits" as two of the biggest reasons health care costs are so high in the U.S. While those points may be debatable, there is no doubt a lot of the blame rests on the free services we are providing for millions of illegals.

It is also very likely that the Obama Administration and supporters of a single-payer system are deliberately undercounting the number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. in order to make it appear that there are far more Americans without health insurance than there actually are to make the need for a nationalized health care system seem more urgent. By some estimates 20 to 25 percent of those alleged 47 million uninsured Americans mentioned earlier are actually illegal immigrants.

There is absolutely no doubt that the vast majority of illegal immigrants do not have health insurance. Most work at jobs that do not provide it. Couple that with the fact that few of them ever pay for the medical treatment they receive and it's easy to understand how this is a huge drain on the American health care system.

It is glaringly apparent that as a nation we must address this situation. Immigration laws serve a purpose. They are not merely suggestions, and they need to be strictly enforced. I know many of you reading this will say this lacks compassion, but should we wait for a total collapse of our health care system before we act? Many hospital emergency rooms and clinics in some areas are already overwhelmed. Would you like to see the greatest health care system in the world transformed into one that more closely resembles that of a third world country?

If you doubt that is possible then look at Califonia. Many California hospitals are simply unable to continue absorbing the cost of treating millions of illegals and receving no payment for the services they provided. It has been reported that as many as 84 California hospitals have already closed, or are in the proccess of closing their doors permanently because of this problem. When this many hospitals are forced to completely shut down the quality of health care is degraded for entire communities, not to mention the economic cost of the job losses when these facilities close. California is a perfect example of what we could be seeing across the country in the near future if steps are not taken to address this problem

How I wish...

So many times we hear the politicians shouting, "The American people want..." (you can fill in the rest) when in reality it's what the politicians want. Take the current health care issue...the American people didn't start all this hullabaloo over health care. The politicians harped on it until they convinced enough simple minds that they must have a problem when the real problems go unattended. One of the real problems is illegal immigration. The American people do not want illegal immigration so the politicians have to keep their minds occupied with other matters. In this case the other matter is health care reform. You must forget illegal immigration because the politicians need the illegals to build their power base...it's all about power! ...and the New World Order...and don't you forget it!
Today I received one of the shortest messages in an email that pretty much sums up what the American people want...here it is here...all in one line! ~ Norman E. Hooben

Obama Care: The Rip Off...of all your personal financial information! "This is more than a little disturbing!"

Source: Politics Alabama

"The required collection of such data is unprecedented. At no other time has the government sought to collect this type of financial information from everyone in America."
Here’s a little tidbit I stumbled across recently. Apparently, the health care bill has a provision buried in it that would give government access to our credit card and bank balances.

Buried in the 1,017 pages of the House Democrats’ health-care bill is a little-noticed provision that for the first time could give the government access to the checking or credit-card information of every American. Under section 163, which is entitled “Administrative Simplification,” the bill sets new “standards” for electronic transactions between individuals and their health-care providers.

According to section 163, the standards will “enable the real-time (or near real-time) determination of an individual’s financial responsibility at the point of service . . . ” In addition, they will “enable electronic funds transfers, in order to allow automated reconciliation with related health care payment and remittance advice.”

What is envisioned is a “machine-readable health plan beneficiary card” that, in addition to information about a person’s medical history, will contain checking-account or credit-card information, so as to allow electronic payments and, if a person is lucky, occasional remittances. Since under the proposed legislation everyone would be required to have health insurance, all Americans would have to provide this information.

The required collection of such data is unprecedented. At no other time has the government sought to collect this type of financial information from everyone in America.

Yet another little landmine buried in this monstrosity. I wonder how many more things like this are buried where nobody has seen them yet?


This is more than a little disturbing. There is no reason why checks, cash, and/or credit cards aren’t good enough to pay for health services received, and the government certainly doesn’t need access to this information. In this country, financial information has been considered a private feature of our lives that government must obtain specific warrants to access.

And it should remain that way.

Dollar Falling Apart? You bet! [this news item was leaked intentionally...but you wouldn't know that]

So this one didn't make the evening news...nor the front pages of your local newspaper...but wake up people it's the news you ought to be paying attention to! As you know I've been warning you about various attempts to get rid of the dollar (to be replaced by the Amero or some global currency discussed at the G20 Summit) and this is just one of those news items that are intentionally leaked by the powers to be that precedes the bigger decision as to just when the time is ripe to make the change-over. And look who they used to release the news! Non-other than CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) member and United Nations supporter of the New World Order, Joseph Stiglitz [former chairman of Council of Economic Advisors (1995-1997)]. ~ Norman E. Hooben

Stiglitz: Dollar Reserve System Falling Apart

BANGKOK -- A new global reserve system is needed after the global financial crisis exposed the U.S. dollar-based system as flawed and risky, Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz said on Friday.

The "dollar now is yielding almost zero return," Stiglitz said in a speech at the United Nations regional headquarters in Bangkok. "The current global reserve system is fraying. It's falling apart. The issue isn't whether we go to a new system. The question is do we do so in an orderly or disorderly way."

The build up of the U.S. deficit, debt and "the boiling up of the balance sheet" is cause for anxiety, he said.

Stiglitz urged rich nations to provide funds to help poorer countries avoid a steep crash during the financial crisis.

The group has called for global coordination to avoid competition to cut taxes, and for a worldwide increase in tax on high earners. Dubbing itself the "Shadow GN", the group has urged governments to opt for bank nationalisations rather than bailouts in order to drive the pace of fresh lending.

Stiglitz said a new global reserve system would be good for global aggregate demand, global stability and global equity.

"It's very hard to have a globally integrated financial system based on a single currency when there's such uncertainties about the economic fortunes of that particular country," he said.

Hey John!! Bill Trautman , a friend of mine from Bigfork was at the gathering in Bozeman. He sent me the message below confirming what the original message I sent to you said.

I was one of those 2000 people that were ignored by the occupant of the whitehouse. Everything in this letter is true right down to the lobster. A UPS driver was opologizing to someone about being late with their delivery. He stated I was waiting in the traffic to get here to deliver lobster to the occupant. Many of out group arrived a day early to get tickets, none was successful. The people in the hanger were pre-selected supporters. We were shut out. Seiu story is also correct. I was right next to them. They were told to leave and refused, the police did nothing. We elected to not confront them, since that is what they wanted ,and it would hurt our cause. We could have easily pushed them off the spot they had taken from us, as we outnumbered them 2000 to about 100. Be concerned about this Admin. is out of control in every aspect. Stand firm our Country depends on the people standing up NOW. If they suceed we may have our right to stand up taken away. This is not dramatics. Ask yourself if you ever could imagine what is going on just a short time ago. Then ask yourself if anything is out of the question. Be a patriot, get off your butts and stand up. Bill

Well folks, I just received the following via email from my cousin's wife. She sent it to all on her mail list. They live in Bozeman, Montana. The only thing I've changed in the email is my cousin's name, for the sake of privacy. My cousin was a Navy pilot. He then flew commercial jets until his retirement. He still flies his own plane and is very involved with the airport operations near their home. He is one of the most patriotic people I know, AND both he and his wife hold themselves to the highest standards of integrity. The following email describes their experience at Obama's "town hall" meeting in Montana.
Quote:
Hello All,
By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana last Friday. However, there are many things that the major news has not covered. I feel that since Joe and I live here and we were at the airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you decide to do with the information is up to you. If you chose to share this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email address before you forward this on.
On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President would be coming here. There are many groups here that are against his healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talking and deciding on what they were going to do. The White House would not release ANY details other than the date.
On about Tuesday Joe found out that they would be holding the "Town Hall" at the airport. (This is only because Joe knows EVERYONE at the airport) Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade (tiny town) in a very remote location. Nothing is around there. They chose to use a hangar that is the most remotely located hangar. You could not pick a more remote location, and you can not get to it easily. It is totally secluded from the public.
FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held a large amount of folks with sufficient parking. (gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and would not have to be SHIPPED IN!! $$$$$
During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped in constantly. Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though it was our President coming several expressed how excessive it was, especially during a recession. $$$$$
Late Tuesday/early Wednesday the 12th, they said that tickets would be handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations and the president would be arriving around 12:30 Friday.
Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out. However, 1500 were printed at a Local printing shop per White House request. Hmmmm......900 tickets just DISAPPEARED.

This same morning someone called into the radio from the local UPS branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobster were shipped in for Obama. Montana has some of the best beef in the nation!!! And it would have been really wonderful to help out the local economy. Anyone heard of the Recession?? Just think...with all of the traveling the White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what else we are paying for.

On Friday Joe and I got out to the airport about 10:45am. The groups that wanted to protest Obama's spending and healthcare had gotten a permit to protest and that area was roped off. But that was not to be. A large bus carrying SEIU (Service Employees International Union) members drove up onto the area (illegal)and unloaded right there. It was quite a commotion and there were specifically 2 SEIU men trying to make trouble and start a fight. Police did get involved and arrested the one man but they said they did not have the manpower to remove the SEIU crowd.
The SEIU crowd was very organized and young. About 99% were under the age of 30 and they were not locals! They had bullhorns and PROFESSIONALLY made signs. Some even wore preprinted T-shirts. Oh, and Planned Parenthood folks were with them.....professing abortion rights with their T-shirts and preprinted signs. (BTW, all these folks did have a permit to protest in ANOTHER area)
Those against healthcare/spending moved away from the SEIU crowd to avoid confrontation. They were orderly and respectful. Even though SEIU kept coming over and walking through, continuing to be very intimidating and aggressive at the direction of the one SEIU man.
So we had Montana folks from ALL OVER the state with their homemade signs and their DOGS with homemade signs. We had cowboys, nurses, doctors you name it. There was even a guy from Texas who had been driving through. He found out about the occasion, went to the store, made a sign, and came to protest.
If you are wondering about the press.....Well, all of the major networks were over by that remote hangar I mentioned. They were conveniently parked on the other side of the buildings FAR away. None of these crowds were even visible to them. I have my doubts that they knew anything about the crowds.

We did have some local news media around us from this state and Idaho. Speaking of the local media...they were invited. However, all questions were to be turned into the White House in advance of the event. Wouldn't want anyone to have to think off the top of their head.
It was very obvious that it was meant to be totally controlled by the White House. Everything was orchestrated down to the last detail to make it appear that Montana is just crazy for Obama and government healthcare. Even those people that talked about their insurance woes........the White House called our local HRDC (Human Resource and Development Committee) and asked for names. Then the White House asked those folks to come. Smoke and mirrors...EVERYTHING was staged!!!!!!!!!!!
I am very dismayed about what I learned about our current White House. The amount of control and manipulation was unbelievable. I felt I was not living in the United States of America, more like the USSR!! I was physically nauseous. Joe and I have been around when Presidents or Heads of State visit. It has NEVER been like this. I am truly very frightened for our country. America needs your prayers and your voices. If you care about our country please get involved. Know the issues. And let Congress hear your voices again and again!! If they are willing to put forth so much effort to BULLY a small town one can only imagine what is going on in Washington DC. Scary!!

Not sure if I am more pissed at the Russkies for lack of respect for the Office of the President or embarrassed at who is in the Office. Sure would like to see this on CNN... fat chance. At least we can share it on the Internet.. for now.

Even during the cold war, Russian leaders never snubbed any U.S. diplomat,
much less the President, like this. I cannot recall a U.S. President ever
being so overtly snubbed. I thought he claimed he was going to "win back"
the respect of Europe. Europe may not have liked Bush, but they had too
much respect for him to snub him like this. It is clear they have no
respect for Obama. This should have the press in an outrage - - but for
some reason, I have missed this footage on TV. Maybe I wasn't watching at
the right time. It is sad that this is real footage, not just a Saturday

I can assure you this will never be shown on ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC. Note

Would You Like Some Hemlock with Your Jello?

Would You Like Some Hemlock with Your Jello? — Government-run ‘End-of-Life’ Counseling at the VA [Jack Fowler]

A must-read essay in today’s Wall Street Journal by Jim Towey (he ran the Bush White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives). Here’s the essence:

Last year, bureaucrats at the VA's National Center for Ethics in Health Care advocated a 52-page end-of-life planning document, "Your Life, Your Choices." It was first published in 1997 and later promoted as the VA's preferred living will throughout its vast network of hospitals and nursing homes. After the Bush White House took a look at how this document was treating complex health and moral issues, the VA suspended its use. Unfortunately, under President Obama, the VA has now resuscitated "Your Life, Your Choices."

Who is the primary author of this workbook? Dr. Robert Pearlman, chief of ethics evaluation for the center, a man who in 1996 advocated for physician-assisted suicide in Vacco v. Quill before the U.S. Supreme Court and is known for his support of health-care rationing.

"Your Life, Your Choices" presents end-of-life choices in a way aimed at steering users toward predetermined conclusions, much like a political "push poll." For example, a worksheet on page 21 lists various scenarios and asks users to then decide whether their own life would be "not worth living."

The circumstances listed include ones common among the elderly and disabled: living in a nursing home, being in a wheelchair and not being able to "shake the blues." There is a section which provocatively asks, "Have you ever heard anyone say, 'If I'm a vegetable, pull the plug'?" There also are guilt-inducing scenarios such as "I can no longer contribute to my family's well being," "I am a severe financial burden on my family" and that the vet's situation "causes severe emotional burden for my family."

When the government can steer vulnerable individuals to conclude for themselves that life is not worth living, who needs a death panel?

*Many naysayers and Obama lovers do not have a clue to his real agenda. Obama is as much a part of this New World Order (NWO) as is George Herbert Walker Bush, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and non other than the guy who has NWO on his brain 24/7, Henry Kissinger. If anybody believes for a moment that Obama is looking out for America's best interest, you're dreaming or smoking some funny weed. Obama will most likely succeed in his attempt to set America on his path to destruction and he will open the doors for China to overwhelm us within our lifetimes...that is if you're young enough to expect to live after the year 2020. By that time China's GDP should either match ours or exceed ours depending on how much damage Obama does before hand. The real problem is National Defense...Obama will most likely succeed in weakening our National Defense Forces (against foreign aggressors) in favor of a National Police Force (power over American Citizens)...something like he's doing now with ACORN.

Peter Schiff: Get Rid of the Politicians


Potential U.S. Senate candidate Peter Schiff has a very simple plan for Washington D.C. Get rid of the politicians.
“We need citizens, people who are in the private sector, to come to Washington, to really get a job done, and then to leave,” Schiff told Newsmax TV’s Dan Mangru. Read more here...plus video.
Needed...
A National Write-In Campaign
Needed to get rid of both Democrats and Republicans.
Democats and Republicans wrote the Federal Election (FEC) rules so
that they can control who runs for office.
Both parties are to blame for the decline in American values, high taxes, and whatever else ails America.
Never vote for a career politician...we need new blood...now!

Elected Officials Are Voted Into Office To Represent Their Districts...right?

Wrong!
Representative form of government went out when America died...
but it was good while it lasted!

Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) addressed an intimate group of Netroots activists during their annual Netroots Nation gathering in Pittsburgh this weekend. Mr. Massa reiterated his support for a single-payer health care bill. He discussed the risks he takes for wanting to support such a measure in his "right-wing Republican district."

According to Swing State Project, Mr. Massa won his 2008 race by 2 percentage points. The district's voting pattern index (PVI) is a Republican +5 seat. The National Republican Congressional Committee has the upstate New York congressman in their sights for 2010 along with 69 other House Democrats as reported by Politico. The transcript is below, and check out the corresponding video above.

MASSA: I’m not going to vote for 3200 as it’s currently written. Step one, I will vote for a single payer option or a bill that does have a medicare coupled public option, which we don’t have right now. If my town hall meetings turn into the same media frenzies and ridiculousness, because every time that happens we lose. We lose another three million people in America. They see that happening and negate us.

PARTICIPANT: It changes America.

MASSA: Every time that occurs. So what happens in my town hall meetings frankly is important, because I am in one of the most right wing Republican districts in the country, and I’m not asking you guys to go back to wherever and send people to me. This is a generic statement of what can I do? Well that’s one thing we can do.

PARTICIPANT: So if we got your meetings to sixty forty, you’d vote…and there was single payer in a bill you would vote for it?

MASSA: Oh absolutely I would vote for single payer.

PARTICIPANT: If there was sixty forty sentiment in the room?

MASSA: Listen, I tell every audience I’m in favor of single payer.

PARTICIPANT: If there was eighty twenty in the room?

MASSA: If there was a single payer bill?

PARTICIPANT: And there was a single payer….

MASSA: I will vote for the single payer bill.

PARTICIPANT: Even if it meant you were being voted out of office?

MASSA: I will vote adamantly against the interests of my district if I actually think what I am doing is going to be helpful.

(inaudible participants' comments regarding the "interests" of the district statement from Mr. Massa)

Massa: I will vote against their opinion if I actually believe it will help them.

_____________
In case you didn't get it there is a message here...
And the message is:
"If you don't vote these people out of office they will vote you out of your right to vote."
This is exactly what has happened here. So-called Representative Massa has put his own self-interests above those of his constituents therefor dictating policy just as they did in the Soviet Union under Stalin, et al.

Sgt. James Crowley Gets Standing Ovation

Sgt. James Crowley gets standing ovation at police convention


By Associated Press Monday, August 17, 2009 http://www.bostonherald.com


LONG BEACH, Calif. — Cambridge police Sgt. James Crowley has opened the five-day convention for the Fraternal Order of Police with brief remarks.

Crowley, who is white, sparked a national debate on race relations when he arrested Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. for disorderly conduct at his home in Cambridge, Mass. Gates is black.

More than 3,000 police officers gave Crowley a standing ovation when he spoke at the Long Beach Convention Center and dozens left their seats to flash snapshots of him.

But Crowley spoke for only a few minutes to thank the officers for their support after the July 16 arrest.

President Barack Obama later said on national TV that Crowley had "acted stupidly," then held a White House beer summit to bring all three men together.

Obama disses Defense of Marriage Act as Justice defends it

Obama disses Defense of Marriage Act as Justice defends it
By Associated Press Monday, August 17, 2009 http://www.bostonherald.com Local Politics

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama insisted Monday he still wants to scrap what he calls a discriminatory federal marriage law, even as his administration angered gay rights activists by defending the it in court.

The president said his administration’s stance in a California court case is not about defending traditional marriage, but is instead about defending traditional legal practice.

Justice Department lawyers filed new papers Monday seeking to throw out a lawsuit brought by a gay couple challenging the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA. Gay rights groups say that by doing so, the administration is failing to follow through on campaign promises made by Obama last year to work to repeal the law.

Department lawyers are defending the law "as it traditionally does when acts of Congress are challenged," Obama said in a statement.

The Clinton-era law denies federal recognition of gay marriage and gives states the right to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

Obama said he plans to work with Congress to repeal the law, and said his administration "will continue to examine and implement measures that will help extend rights and benefits" to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender couples under existing law.

The government says in its court filing that it will defend the statute in this case because a reasonable argument can be made that the law is constitutional — a standard practice of government lawyers.

The mixed message got a mixed review from Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights group.

"It is not enough to disavow this discriminatory law, and then wait for Congress or the courts to act," Solmonese said in a statement. "While they contend that it is the DOJ’s duty to defend an act of Congress, we contend that it is the administration’s duty to defend every citizen from discrimination."

Walter Dellinger, a former solicitor general during the Clinton administration, praised Monday’s filing for striking "a delicate but appropriate balance between the government’s obligation to respect federal laws enacted by Congress and this administration’s policy and moral concerns about this particular law."

The government’s previous filing in the case angered gay rights activists who supported Obama’s candidacy in part because of his pledge to move forward on repealing the law and the "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy that prevents gays from serving openly in the military.

The Justice Department is obligated "to defend federal statutes when they are challenged in court. The Justice Department cannot pick and choose which federal laws it will defend based on any one administration’s policy preferences," said department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler.

"DOMA reflects a cautiously limited response to society’s still-evolving understanding of the institution of marriage," according to the filing by Assistant Attorney General Tony West.

The administration also disavowed past arguments made by conservatives that DOMA protects children by defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

"The United States does not believe that DOMA is rationally related to any legitimate government interests in procreation and child-rearing and is therefore not relying upon any such interests to defend DOMA’s constitutionality," lawyers argued in the filing.

Monday’s court filing was in response to a lawsuit by Arthur Smelt and Christopher Hammer, who are challenging the federal law, which prevents couples in states that recognize same-sex unions from securing Social Security spousal benefits, filing joint taxes and benefiting from other federal rights connected to marriage.

Justice lawyers have argued that the act is constitutional and contend that awarding federal marriage benefits to gays would infringe on the rights of taxpayers in the 30 states that specifically prohibit same-sex marriages.

Earlier this year, Massachusetts became the first state to challenge the law in court.

Swine Flu and You...more warnings! Does vaccine increase the risk of cancer?

Swine flu - German health expert warning does virus vaccine increase cancer risk

German health expert's swine flu warning Does virus vaccine increase the risk of cancer?



The swine flu vaccine has been hit by new cancer fears after a German health expert gave a shock warning about its safety.

Wolfgang Wodarg

Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg is a politician and a specialist in lungs, hygiene and environmental medicine. He is the chairman of the health committee in the German parliament and European Council.

Lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has said that there are many risks associated with the vaccine for the H1N1 virus.

He has grave reservations about the firm Novartis who are developing the vaccine and testing it in Germany. The vaccination is injected “with a very hot needle”, Wodarg said.

The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of cancerous cells from animals and "we do not know if there could be an allergic reaction".

But more importantly, some people fear that the risk of cancer could be increased by injecting the cells.

The vaccine - as Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, has pointed out - can also cause worse side effects than the actual swine flu virus.

Wodrag also described people’s fear of the pandemic as an "orchestration": “It is great business for the pharmaceutical industry,” he told the ‘Neuen Presse’.

Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. “On the contrary if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak,” he added.

The chairman of the health committee in the European Council has urged for a careful and calm reaction to the virus.

Up until now, the producers of the vaccine did not know how many orders they would have by the autumn, but the German Government is now a guaranteed customer.

Even the pharmaceutical companies are trying to exploit the fear of the swine flu pandemic.

Care2 Joins Obama's Hate The Jews Agenda

Subject: J Street Deception


J Street posted a petition at Care2 petitionsite, seeking support for President Obama's Anti-Israel foreign policy. Their supporting text is reproduced below, in block quote format and Ariel type face, interspersed with my comments.

The status quo in the Middle East is unsustainable - for Israel, for the Palestinians, and for the United States. Yet some in Congress are trying to undermine President Obama's balanced approach to solving the region's problems.


The status quo is constant, low level warfare periodically interrupted by extremely intense warfare, punctuated by constant threats. President Obama's approach is not balanced, it leans to the Islamic side, letting the aggressors do as they please while constantly carping at Israel and making unreasonable demands for suicidal actions and policies.


Defenders of the unworkable status quo are whispering to the White House and Congress that supporting the President's thoughtful and balanced approach to the Middle East could hurt them politically.

Supporting President Obama's demand that Israel surrender will eventually contribute to the loss of their sinecures because a growing number of voters are becoming informed of the Islamic agenda which is being promoted by left wingers including President Obama.


Jewish-Americans, as well as Americans more broadly, must stand up to support President Obama's sensible pro-Israel policy in the Middle East.


Now is the time to be Americans, to reject identity politics and the inevitable Balkanization to which it leads. Our national interest is exactly the same as that of Israel: complete, total and permanent defeat of Islamic aggression wheresoever dispersed over the face of the earth.


They're saying that President Obama should only press the Palestinians or Arab States. Of course, Palestinians and Arab states should do more for peace - but so should Israel, specifically by heeding his Administration's call to stop building settlements.


Only the aggressor can make peace without exterminating the aggressor. Israel can only make peace by removing Islam from all territory within rocket range. Islam can make peace by permanently abandoning Jihad. If Israel is to walk the path to peace, it must terminate in the Muslim Cemetery. Settlements are not an obstacle to peace. "Occupation" of "disputed territories" is not an obstacle to peace. Islamic doctrine is the obstacle to peace.


J Street, a new Jewish-led pro-Israel, pro-peace lobby, supports President Obama's balanced and strong American leadership to achieve a two-state solution, because that's the only way to secure Israel's future as a Jewish, democratic homeland and to create a homeland for the Palestinian people. A two-state solution is also a vital American interest.


The only possible solution is a one state solution: Israel alone in the Levant. While there is an Islamic state within rocket range, there will be no peace. Arab pride as well as Islamic doctrine make peace absolutely impossible.


Your representatives in Congress need to hear from the majority of Jewish Americans and Americans generally who support Israel and the President's balanced approach, including his call for a complete freeze on Israeli settlements.


Congress must hear from Americans who understand Islamic doctrine & practice and recognize the fatal fact that Islam is inimical to peace in all places, at all times.

"Jewish Americans", "Muslim Americans", "African Americans", Mexican Americans" etc. need to decide if they are Americans or not. There is no place in our nation for Balkanization. United we stand, divided we fall. If you are not American, then go home, where you belong.

President Obama's demand for termination of settlements, stopping all growth & development, removing check points and other security measures while sending money to the enemy and training & arming their militias is the peak of suicidal damnfoolery; it is imbalanced on the wrong side, and it must come to a halt!

I shall now proceed to show you exactly why America and Israel can never obtain peace by any other means than making Islam extinct.

  • 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.
  • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Muslims are commanded by their demon to fight atheists and pagans until all resistance ceases and only Allah is worshiped. Muslims are commanded to fight Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians until they are subjugated and extorted. Muslims who do not join or rigorously support the Jihad go to Hell. Muslims who go to war go to Paradise.

Because the bigots reading this are in denial, swearing that the cited ayat are mis-interpreted, mis-translated, mis-understood or anachronistic, I present confirmation from the hadith: codified Islamic oral tradition.

  • Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:
    Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

The Muslims must hunt down and kill the last Jew before they can obtain admission to the celestial bordello. But, of course, that is anachronistic, not applicable in modern times. Of course, there is a vacant space between your ears.

  • Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526


    Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, "There is no god but Allah" and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.
Jihad is the original religion of Muslims; abandoning it in favor of productive pursuits will subject them to a curse which will not be lifted until they return to Jihad.

  • Sunan Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

    Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

Your Access For The Opportunity To Get In Line...what the mainstream media is not telling you about Obama's health care.

This is actual footage of a Congressman who is an M.D. discussing the bill in Congressional session.

This is a YouTube video that was made of US Rep. Tom Price- 6th Dist. on Wednesday. Tom is a member of the House Healthcare Committee, and the video was shot in the Wed. Committee meeting. Please share this with everyone you know.............this healthcare legislation MUST be defeated. Please share this video. Tom has said that our Constitution is being burned right before our very eyes. We must, Democrats and Republicans alike, let our "leaders" know that this plan is unacceptable.
There has to be a better way than a government takeover! If the Government takes over, it will be one of the most colossal blunders in the history of this Nation!

Accessory to murder...you make the call!
